nancy pelosi, making fun of republicans. a guy dressing up as santa claus. bringing 200 pounds of coal to republicans. distractions in such high taxes coming. what will it take to get these two sides together? >> well, we talk about distractions. we have the president telling us that we need some kind of cooling off period. this is a president that had two years with the democratic house and senate. and everyday come they woke up and did not raise taxes. so they really wanted to do this, if they really believe, they want their taxes to go up on earners making more than $250,000 tunnel were we waiting until the last minute? ten days before the tax hike said. it is a mystery that they are saying that this is an emergency one they had to two years they could have done before. gerri: okay, this is what plan b was under john boehner. if you make a million dollars one year you pay a permanent estate tax at 35%, not 50%. that will go into effect january 1. if plan be is a no go, what will plan c look like? by the way, i love your red jacket. >> the problem isn't this. the real problem is the
with congressman frost that there needs to be leadership. and the house is in some disarray, but nancy pelosi came up with the idea of having this bill, this plan b that john boehner put on the floor. she said taxes should no the be increased on people who make up to a million dollars and small business owners who make up to a million dollars. and charles schumer in the senate has been pushing this. there have been prominent democrats pushing this plan. you know what is surprising? you know why the congressional approval ratings are so low? national pelosi voted against john boehner's bill or said she wouldn't uh port it, and it was -- wouldn't uh sport it, and it was her idea. this is what the american people are tired of as we head to the cliff. >> republicans have a majority in the house. all they had to do was to bring the bill up and get their people to vote for. it they couldn't do it. this is a disaster for the republicans in the house. >> shouldn't nancy paw pelosi, shouldn't she support her own idea? >> she is in the minority. look, the republicans run the house. boehner couldn't get his
that nancy pelosi had suggested back when it was her idea. and the president just simply dismissed it out of hand. he said raising taxes on only people mdking $1 million or more a year isn't going to cut it. and so i don't really -- i don't see how, given the things that harry read and president obama have dismissed out of hand that speaker boehner brought them. i don't know what speaker boehner could bring to make them budge other than 100% of everything president obama now says he wants. >> one of the others things americans want and when they voted was on the back of their mind is this country needs a balanced budget like all of us have had to reevaluate our budgets. who is committed to that? >> well, i think that a lot of the stalwarts in the house to made the promise of not raising taxes, that where the people are most adamant about the importance of a budget. we're looking at five years now, is that possible? five years in the senate. harry reid has not been able to produce a budget and the budget president obama recommended last year or two years ago when to the democratic senate a
they will primary any democrats who vote for it. they said if nancy pelosi votes for it, they will not offer for our support if she tries to run for the minority leader of the democrats. host: speaking of the leadership situation, talk to me a little bit about the lead -- allegiances in the house, punching in among the republicans. do the republicans favor the leadership of eric cantor more than the leadership of john boehner and? will this cost john boehner his -- more than the leadership of john boehner? will this cost john brennan his speakership? guest: boehner said the members were not angry with him. they were not showing dissatisfaction with him. one of the other things about that was that standing next to him at the press conference was eric cantor. that was a clear sign that these guys are tied together and eric cantor is not ready to unseat john brennan. there was a lot of symbolism in that press conference. -- ready to unseat john boehner. if he goes back and stars to negotiate with president obama and tries to bring back the deal at this conference cannot accept again, the danger to him
. caller: what if nancy pelosi and john boehner got it together, and nancy pelosi told john boehner that if he could bring votes for his speakership, and they could maybe together isolate the tea party section of his group and then kind of take away the radical left of her group and bring the moderates together, support him for speakership? now, we would not get everything that i want, but also the republicans would not get everything they wanted, and by the time elections came up, they would see there is a lot of progress made, and maybe they could not run primary on those guys that are decided to go to the middle with nancy pelosi and that are together. host: thanks for the call. guest: don, you are suggesting that john boehner would be elected basically as a democratic speaker. it is not likely they would give him the votes. it is far more likely, quite honestly, that they would like to see some continued disruption in, let's say, in the force in the republican side, and john boehner would be a much weakened speaker, where he would be deposed, and they would have to find someone
every day on this issue and to our leader nancy pelosi and all of my colleagues. president obama and the american people are demanding change and we can bring that change by passing this friday a ban on the massacre assault magazines. we can pass it. believe me, if guns made anyone safer, we would be the safest nation on earth. we have more guns per capita than any country on earth. and after the unfathomable tragedy, our country is united and determined in a demand for change. without change in our gun policy, we cannot expect the outcome to be any different from what we are already experiencing and we have already had too many mass murders and the cost is unbearable. these were elementary schoolchildren. and their teachers. but there have been movie goers. americans going to town hall meetings. there are some who say any gun restriction is an imposition on their liberty. but they must understand that the level of gun violence in america today is an imposition on the liberty of all americans. millions of people. today we call on speaker boehner to work together with us to make a
me whether this is a dream come true -- what if nancy pelosi and john boehner kind of got together and nancy pelosi told boehner he could bring the votes for his speakership and then maybe together could isolate the tea party section of his group and take away some of the radical left of her group and burn the moderates together, support him for speakership. me, being a democrat, i would not get everything i want, but the republicans would get everything they wanted. by the time re-election came up they would have seen there was a lot of progress made and maybe they could not run primaries on those guys that decided to run to the middle with policy and later together. host: thank you for the call. so many things. basically, you are assuming that john boehner would be elected speaker in a democratic house. it is not likely that they would give him their votes. it is far more likely, quite honestly, that the democrats would like to see continued disruption on the republican side. either way there would be a much-weakened speaker or he would be deposed. host: agree or disagree? guest:
if prices go up. in the end, benefits for people would be cheaper. nancy pelosi had this to say. >> do you consider it a benefit cut? >> no. i don't. i consider it a strengthening. that's neither here nor there. there's no sense discussing that. we don't know if we have a plan. >> call it a cut or not, as we await a deal, a looming question is just what aspects of social security are on the table. back to the panel. i want to go to richard first. last week, we had 102 democrats sign a letter demanding changed cpi be left out of the deal making. do they have a right to be concerned? >> absolutely. i'm surprised to hear it's not a cut. it is a cut. it's going to be a cut down the line for thousands of senior citizens living on fixed incomes facing rising cost on health care and food. the idea that when it gets too expensive you buy tuna. when that's too expensive you buy cat food. we are taking from the most vulnerable level of the population. >> the president's proposal to go to cpi included holding harmless poor seniors. then the other thing is that progressives have proposed this, too. th
with the president? >> i think he is right. whenever you had whether nancy pelosi with his caucus or speaker boehner you have a lot of cats to herd. on these issues you have cats going different ways. the speaker may say one thing publicly and every member of congress feels they have to make a comment on that. it is tough to get 218. he was in charge to get that a lot of times. you have to figure out what is the best deal for the country and sell that to your caucus. that is what being a leaderer is all about. >> one more question for you because speaker boehner has been getting beat up a little bit by his own party this week. do you think his leadership is at stake? >> i don't think there is doubt that he will stay speaker. he is in good shape. >> thank you both. >>> coming up later in our program in 1990 he signed the nation's toughest ban on assault rifles into law. new jersey's former governor joins us to talk about the battle with the nra. >>> and a modern day santa claus. you are watching msnbc. many of my patients still clean their dentures with toothpaste. but they have to use special care i
months. all right. thank you, everybody. >> nancy pelosi and a group of house democrats held a news conference promoting bills that would ban assault weapons and high capacity clips as well as other possible changes to gun laws. some of the members either lost a relative to gun violence or were shot themselves. this is almost one hour. >> these actions do not eliminate the need for a ban. that make any gun and assault weapon. he brings to this debate his own personal experience. the tragedy struck the hearts of every american. we have to respond. we can get the job done. it recalibrate the legislation in a way that is affected. we mourn the loss of prestige -- precious children. we of them to do everything in our power to take sensible actions to prevent the violence and insure the safety of a schools and neighborhoods and to build the future for all americans. i'm very pleased to yield two carolyn. >> thank you, leader pelosi for allowing us to come together again after too many types. i can't name everybody. i'll probably miss somebody. we have been here before and we have been he
